Everyone commented on how great the food was and we were all super stoked at how easy it was for us to chuck it on the table and serve, after picking up from you guys... it save us all a ton of time AND effort, but with the best result! You guys are DEFINITELY doing it right - thanks heeeeaps!!

Hi Karen.

Just a quick note to compliment you on the food and service at our party lastnight. The party ended up being a wedding of my daughter. Everyone there was impressed with the food.The girls did a great job and packed up that quick I didn't get a chance to thank them. We have found 1 plate.1 knife and 2 forks in the clean up, we can drop them off next time we are in Chch. if you let me know where.

 Once again thank you and I will recommend to anyone needing a spitroast meal to use you.

 Cheers Steve Earl


Hi Karen

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank you and your team for the fantastic job today (and last night). Everyone was very grateful, the food was amazing and your team of helpers were awesome. 

Thank you again.



Hi Karen

Just a quick email to let you know that everyone at our client’s place appreciated that food was so delicious on Friday. Vegetarian lasagne was good too. I was lucky that the vegan person did not turn up so I got to try chef’s rice and red lentil curry – and you should pass on to him that it was great. 

Thanks for organising it so well and for the lovely food. Spitroast will be our caterers from now on :)




Hi Karen 

The family would like to thank your company  who provided lunch at  our fathers 90th birthday recently. A good day was had by all and made better by the food and the service provided  by your company

Again please thank all your team

Hi Karen

I just wanted to write and say thank you for providing the catering for our wedding on 8th April 2017.  The food arrived on time and was delicious.  The guests I spoke to all commented how great the meat tasted (succulent and tender) and the quantities you supplied were ample for our needs.  At the end of the evening all that was left was a few salad leaves and some bread rolls!
Kind regards

Hi Karen, thank you for the wonderful food for our dinner over Easter weekend. A great night was had by all !

Just a quick email to thank you and Simon for the yummy spit roast you provided for our guests last Sunday 5th February.

We are very impressed with the professionalism of Simon and his assistant and the delicious food served on crisp white tables. Also the set up and clean up were carried out in a very efficient manner and this gave us the time to spend with our guests. 

Our guests were complimentary of the food and the service and we are very appreciative of your company for making our day special and enjoyable.

Thank you so much, we will recommend your company to anyone who is contemplating such service.

A joy to deal with and we will certainly recommend you to others

Thanks again



Hi Karen

Thank you for the way you made things simple for us to organize the Spitroast dinner and kept us informed. And a big thank you to your wonderful team ( sorry I can't remember their names) they did an awesome job catering of my 70th birthday party on Saturday. It was a perfect night and everyone enjoyed the function. I hope you get a few more bookings as a result.

Hi Karen 
I just thought I would say thank you for the food and service you and your team provide to us for our wedding.
It was lovely food and just what we wanted,

Thanks once again

Scott & Kelly


Good morning Karen 

Just emailing with a huge thank you for the meal you did for us on Sunday might.

Wow, everyone was so impressed the food was amazing, but the thing that topped it off for myself and my manager was the great staff member who dropped the food off (sorry I don’t know his name). He was early, he came in and set everything up and explained it all, was friendly and happy and was just amazing.

So we would just like to thank you for your amazing work and let you know it was appreciated and we will definitely be telling all and sundry about you guys.

Have a great Christmas and New Year, hopefully you will all get a wee break at some stage.


Amanda Greaves

Just want to mention that we enjoyed having the Spit Roast come out to Mead Hall in Rakaia last Thursday night.  The Backyard BBQ was a hit and just so easy for us.  Would like to mention that Paul who did the BBQ was great, nothing was a bother and the food was perfect.

Kind regards

Just wanted to pass on our grateful thanks to you and all your fantastic staff who helped cater for our family reunion earlier in the month, the weekend was a huge success and its all thanks to people like yourselves. We heard nothing but praise for the meal and service so once again thanks and we have no problem with recommending you to anyone in the future as we already have with The Kaikoura Ladies Lions Club so hopefully you will be hearing from them soon.

Chris Boyd


Good morning Jason

We have had so much feed back about our wedding and I wanted to pass some on to you. Without exception people thought the meal was completely amazing and your staff were polite and friendly. I'm not sure if you remember our first conversation when I was planning the wedding. I told you that friendly staff was very important to me. People told us that it was the best spit roast they have had. So thank you very much for the fantastic food and great service. I would defiantly recommend you to others on the brides page if this is ok with you.

Thanks again Jason

Kind regards



Hi Karen/jason 

i would like to say a huge thanks to you and your company for catering for us on the 21st feb for our wedding. The food was absolutely delicious and your staff were exceptional and
professional. I will be recommending you to everyone that i know. hope to deal with your company again in the future :)

thank you sooooo much really appreciate it :)




Hi Jason,

Just completing the final wash up of the Linklater reunion held Easter Weekend in Hokitika.From numerous compliments I received you need to be advised that you and your staff preformed to the highest of standards in presenting a meal to be remembered. As you are well aware to get in right on the Westcoast is to ensure visits in the future,this you did.
I appreciated your style of operation and enjoyed the contact. All the very best for the future. 




Hi Karen,

Just a quick note to say a big thank you – the meal was excellent – we’re still eating leftovers! Your staff did a fantastic job - serving was bang on time and the clean-up was great. It took so much stress away from us not having to prepare, cook, serve and clean-up. My son tried to give the staff a tip, but apparently they refused, saying it’s not the Kiwi way. Please pass on my thanks to your staff and a five star customer service rating for Canterbury Spitroast.




Hi Karen,

Thanks so much to you and your team for the effort put into the catering for our plant opening on Friday. You’ll be pleased to hear the event when off without any issues and I have received plenty of compliments about the food – of course I have been giving all the credit to you guys!

Thanks again from the Pound Road Team,

Fulton Hogan
